is angela rye, political strategist and principal of impact strategies. ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it's only the middle of february 2013 and we have a slurry of individuals, bobby jindal, marco rubio, rand paul, paul ryan, but as far as jindal goes, he doesn't seem -- he seems to be having a hard time convincing voters in his own state. he only gets something like 37% of people in louisiana who want to support him. what do you think his prospects are to begin with? >> first and foremost, i think it's a really bad idea to kind of poll or test policies on your state not paying attention to what really matters to the folks and the residents of louisiana. so i think he really has to get a better handle on what his state cares about right now. it's not school vouchers. it's not this new tax proposal he has. it's things that immediately matter like what's happening with the economy. i have no idea what bobby jindal is doing but he's a little off base here. >> that's a fair condemnation. jonathan,
me now is richard wolffe and angela. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> it's a hard sell but republicans seem to crumble on a bunch of these issues. what's going on? >> they are picking fights they cannot win. they are picking fights about defense secretary who is always going to have enough votes. yes, they mess around with him. he was always going to get confirmed. it's a bit like the sequester. they have to cave. the pressure is too intense watching this unfold. medicaid dollars, really, are you going to have governors with the supreme court saying you have a choice. governors are going to turn down dollars that make them more popular. they are not picking smart fights here. that leads to a bigger question. will they ever break out of what bobby jindal call the stupid party? that's the thing they are facing right now. >> angela, you work the hill. you know it better than most people in this town. you were there in 2010 when the tea party movement was at its height and had a lot of strength. salon says that not only do the republicans seem to be cav
been written by mitt romney. let's bring in our guest now angela rye and i'm joined in studio by krystal ball. krystal, the one thing marco rubio probably wanted to avoid last night was any comparison with bobby jindal. but that didn't stop jindal from tweeting out his congratulations to senator rubio last night. heck of a job there, marco. but on the seismic scale of horrendous public speeches, where does mr. rubio's come? >> well, the big problem visually is he just didn't seem like he was ready for the big stage. he was sort of sweating. you could tell his mouth was dry. there was the awkward water grab. it's not so much the water itself, it's that he seemed nervous. he did not feel presidential. and i imagine someone like a chris christie who would have gotten up there and would have had that swagger, would have commanded the room. so i think that is unfortunately the lasting impression. and the other piece you pointed out, this is the man who is supposed to be the new face of the new republican party. and his personal story is very compelling. but the actual meat and subs
meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. they realize there's nothing they can do to control him. and they are becoming the face of the party. >> but angela, some members of his own party may begin to know it, but marco rubio is praising him as a superstar. look at ted cruz's resume. he believes sharia law is replacing american law. he believes medicaid is unconstitutional. he proposed state nullification of the affordable care act. he even thinks there's a
as we have a result. but before that let's bring in our panel, angela rye, political strategist and principal of impact strategies, karen finney, former dnc communications director and ari melber, correspondent for "the nation." welcome to all of you. chuck hagel is about to be confirmed after the next secretary of defense after 18 republicans voted to move his confirmation to a final vote. what exactly did this fight accomplish in your view? >> well, we got to learn the truth about the grudge match between john mccain and some in the republican party and chuck hagel. john mccain laid it out for us pretty clearly when he said that it was, you know, some of the criticisms that hagel had of president bush that angered a lot in the republican party. i don't think it gets any clearer than that. >> that's very helpful and very clear. thank you, karen. ari, let's talk about the friends of hamas because while there were many bogus charges leveled at chuck hagel, friends of hamas may symbolize them at the best. this was a story delivered by thee the editor-at-large of breitbart media. h
'll be talking to michael tomasky, from the daily beast. and angela kelly from the center for american progress, she is one of the leaders on shaping legislation reform on capitol hill. she'll let us know what we can expect from the senate and the white house. and i think it's what nine days now from sequester time. get ready. but first. ♪ >> the late king of pop, michael jackson's son started a new job last night. prince michael now 16 years old appeared on entertainment tonight where he is a special correspondent. he says he wants to become a well-rounded producer director screen writer and actor. just 16. >> this will end well. >> bill: isn't there some rule about child labor in hollywood? >> 16 you can work. >> it's just -- come on already. >> bill: go to college -- >> exactly. >> bill: i'm sure he got his job on merit as a reporter. and we know how these things work out when you take kids and shove them in front of the camera at young aims. >> another former obama advisor has taken a job as news consult important. david axelrod. >> bill: it's very clear if you want the
and an opinion writer for the "washington post" and angela reid, principle of impact strategies and msnbc contributor susan dellpurseo. >> you come in on president a days. let's dive in and get to work talking about this leaked proposal that came out. angela, i want to start with you. we have the timeline here and if we look at it, the president was scheduled to go to las vegas on january 29th and give his first policy speech of the second administration but we see that on the 28th the bipartisan group of senators, they came out with their plan trying to trump the president to seem ahead of him. is this a way in the chess match with the leaked reform bill getting out there a way for the president to get the ball back. >> i think if we stay a step back and think about what was in the leaked draft proposal, it is not that being showing. anyone listening to the state of the union address or anything else this administration has said about immigration, it is not a rouge surprise. we should be real about where we are and when you look at the senators bart of the bipartisan coalition, you think
's no doubt, angela, that the numbers of gun owners who feel the way that wayne lapierre feels. >> the president has their polls. wayne lapierre does not. i remember in elementary school i had to take a current event class and i'm wondering if he's not paying attention to the news. we have newtown with 20 kids gone. and you have this new killer on the rampage in los angeles. at some point the gun laws can no longer control us. we have to control them. >> well, i wonder, too, david if they are tone deaf. universal background checks, which do seem, if anything, have the broadest support. take a listen. >> at first glance, there's nothing universal about it at all. but think about it, criminals won't be part of that universe. think about it. they will steal their guns. >> the polls are not on the nra side. 52% of americans support stricter gun control laws. overwhelming support for the universal background checks. 92%. 56% support a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. is the nra tone deaf? >> well, i think clearly there's a reaction to newtown that is not expected,
's agenda. he met angela merkel in berlin on tuesday. he is now in paris where he is due to hold talks with french president francois hollande. >> the u.s. secretary of state and his french counterpart will give a news conference a little later. we expect them to stand shoulder to shoulder on the issue of mali. the u.s. has backed the intervention in mali and has offered logistical support to french troops. a reminder of just how precarious the situation is in moly with this car bombing which is reported to have killed seven people. what everybody is more interested in hearing about today is what the two men will set on syria. there are reports that the u.s. is going to shift its policy slightly to an offer direct assistance to the syrian opposition. we will have to wait and see what happens in that news conference. france and the u.s. had a good relationship. the relationship nosedived after the 2003 invasion of iraq, but they seem to be getting back on track. they certainly seem to be singing from the same song book on the issues of mali and syria. >> barack obama is calling for both
of state. >>> meanwhile, keep an eye on vice president joe bide hoon is in germany meeting with angela merkel. they'll have a midday conference. how is your friday weekend looking? bill karins is here. >> happy february. groundhog's going to be popping up soon. >> and hopefully spring is here. >> we all hope. let's look at the cold, yesterday it was the big story. minneapolis to fargo and now spread as far south as chicago and minneapolis. the windchill is on the brutal side. minus 12. yesterday it was contained to the northern plains now it's spread from illinois to the ohio valley and the great lakes. anytime you get this cold of an air mass over the lakes that still isn't frozen yet, you'll get snow bands. these streamers from the south side of lake erie, from cleveland all through the new york city throughedway, south of buffalo. and back towards kalamazoo, we've got snow coming off of lake michigan also. as far as the forecast goes what we're looking forward to in the next five days clipper lows. they're coming with one going through west virginia, another one through iowa and ano
president joe biden who is in germany meeting with chancellor angela merkel. >>> now here's your first look at this morning's dish of scrambled politics. chris christie praised president obama's response to hurricane sandy and he says they had a fun chat at the white house later about how much money the government would give to the victims in new jersey. >>> on monday, governor christie sits down with david letterman. he's been known to make jokes about christie's weight. he says he hopes they're funny. mitt romney's campaign donated $90,000 to the red cross to help victims of soup storm sandy. geraldo riff yar is considering a run for the senate in new jersey in 2014. so that could become a race against newark mayor corey booker who already said he's interested in running for the democratic nomination for that same senate seat. >>> the federal election commission reports that president obama raised over $738 million for the 2012 campaign. final pricetag for the entire 2012 election totals $7 billion. that's a new high. >>> but a new poll says trusting government is at a new low. 53% of ame
that meeting discussing how to curb gun violence. angela also brooks and police chief tom manger are is et to speak at the event. >>> we expect to learn more about young people in the district and their struggles thanks to the group, raise d.c. the group released some of the numbers already. six in ten students graduate high school in four years. 42% of them are employed full-time. 10,000 low income youths between 16 and 24 don't have a job and aren't in school. raise d.c. includes school's chancellor kaya henderson and leaders from the business sector and other organizations. it's to help young people in d.c. from the time they start school to job opportunities ach high school. >>> look for changes at the pentagon station. metro is closing the station's south entrance so crews can replace three escalators there. when completed this fall, they will be similar to the ones built at the dupont circle station. the north entrance will stay open during the construction. >>> all right. the reports surrounding boxing legend muhammad ali that has his family punching back this morning. >>> keeping a
to the last drop. >>> david cameron says he'll be semised as a spiritual leader to millions. angela merkel -- the italian prime minister says he is greatly shaken. claudio levagne is covering the. >> reporter: it came as a major shock here. the only time that a pope resigned was back in 1294, the fifth to resign, and that didn't go so well with public sentiment. the recent ig nails was called the great refusal, and even featured in dante's inferno "the divine comedy." received more positive reactions this time. a cardinal said they admired his courage, and it does take courage to step down as a leader of a 1.2 billion catholics around the world, but pope benedict xiv is ed it himself, i don't have the strength to carry on all the duties that are required by the pope and the pontiff. he just wants a younger pope with more stamina and more strength to take over. chris? >> claudio, thank you so much, from rome. >>> two senate committees now plan to hold hearings because of the growing controversy over president obama's unmanned drone program. it's the democrats who are worried about the balan
